Drake Bows Down To His Nation’s Honorary Queen, Céline Dion

The Canadian musicians had a magical moment backstage at the Billboard Music Awards.

What a time to be alive, eh?

Famous Canadians Drake and Céline Dion met backstage at Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards and the exchange looked as sweet as maple syrup.

The sensitive rapper, who took home a record-breaking 13 awards including Top Artist, was completely humbled when he met the legendary singer. That night, Dion performed the “Titanic” hit “My Heart Will Go On” to mark the film’s 20th anniversary during the show.

When Drake met Dion, he did what any good Canadian should do in her presence — he bowed.

And, alas, Twitter loved the moment.

Drake then told Dion, in footage of their encounter that surfaced online, “You’re very iconic.”

“It’s very nice to meet you!” Dion responded.

“I’m a year away from a Céline tat,” Drake added, demonstrating where he would possibly tattoo some Céline-inspired ink.

Dion seemed pleased with Drake’s very polite worshipping of her.

Céline approves.

She even gave Drake’s father, Dennis Graham, permission to take a photo with her.

All in all, the meeting seemed pretty adorable.

Canadian royalty.

Oh, man.

This moment is now here in our hearts, and our hearts will go on. And on.
